about concealed weapons. a hint? wayne lapierre hates this decision. the developments in the gun control debate are coming up next. [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if you have new or worse symptoms.

not dealt with. >> this could be another new problem for some moderate voter, wayne lapierre, he runs the nra. i want to read you a snippet of this op-ed piece. "after hurricane sandy we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia, looters ran wild in south brooklyn." didn't happen. "there was food, water, electricities, hurricanes, tornadoes, riots, terrorists, gangs, lone criminals, these are perils we are sure to face. not just maybes. it's not paranoia to buy a gun, it's survival, responsible behavior and it's time we encourage law-abiding americans to do just that." many including joe scarborough said the op-ed was laced with "racial overtones" among other things. what is wayne lapierre doing for the republican party? >> wayne lapierre is representing his organization. whether he's trying to fold into his organization. >> long identified with the gop. >> there's a difference between the nra and the rnc. he's doing what he's paid to do and representing it. the nice thing the democrats are doing are lopping the two groups together so i do understand that

proposals in a new op-ed titled "stand and fight." wayne lapierre lays out his plan and explains his case for why owning a gun is not about paranoia but survival. saying after hurricane sandy we saw the hellish world. and here with some of the reaction to that on "morning joe." >> it's about money. >> of course. >> he ain't crazy. >> he works for the gun manufacturers. >> and the gun manufacturers making lots of money. so it sounds crazy, but what he's doing is very simple. trying to scare americans and appealing to their racist side. >> yeah. >> the boogieman. >> joining me right now is msnbc political analyst and columnist for the hill karen finney and john brabender. >> good morning. >> do you agree? are there racial overtones here? >> well, i hope that isn't the intent. and i'm going to take it that it is not. but i really think the whole problem really started tuesday night with the president's speech where i believe he is leveraging terrible tragedies that have happened in this country, playing on emotions that makes good tv and standing ovations, but offered no leadership, no ideas
